Gwyneth Paltrow ‘s TV spoof is a conscious comedy caricature
GWYNETH PALTROW sent herself up over her use of the phrase ‘conscious uncoupling’ on a US comedy show.
The Iron Man actress brought the term to worldwide attention when she and ex Chris Martin announced their split in 2014.
And in a skit with comedian Heidi Garner on Saturday Night Live, she was happy to be mocked about it.
Garner, 35, played a saleswoman trying to sell Paltrow’s lifestyle brand Goop. ‘I’m afraid Gwyneth’s gonna fire me,’ she told Paltrow, who wore a brown wig in the role of a sales manager. Oscar winner Paltrow, 46, quipped: ‘It’s called conscious unemploying.’
Show host Idris Elba also poked fun at himself. The Luther actor, 46, talked about his former job as a bouncer. ‘I made some great contacts, by which I mean I sold weed,’ he joked.
